Tulle Pom Poms

I have been making these pom poms off and on for the past few weeks and finally had enough to put up in the corner of the nursery, right above the rocker. I love them! They are fun, fashionable and bring some nice finishing touches to the nursery. Here's how they ended up looking in my nursery...
The best part is that they are SUPER easy to make. And I'm not just saying that. 
Here's how it's done...

1. You need a large hardcover book, pair of scissors, and a roll of tulle
(the bigger the book, the bigger the pom pom)
(the more tulle you use, the fuller the pom pom will be)
2. Cut a portion of the tulle about 12 inches long and set aside.
Holding the end firmly in place, begin to wrap the tulle around the book. Don't wrap too tight, but loose enough that you can eventually pull it off the edge of the book.
3. Wrap the entire roll of tulle around the book on top of itself.
It should look something like this when you finish.
4. Now slide the tulle off of the book being very careful to hold it in place.
5. Grab the tulle around the center length wise and place it on the piece of cut tulle you had set aside.
6. Tie that piece of tulle tightly as close to the center as possible. Double knot it.
7. Now take your pair of scissors and cut through all of the loops on either end.
8. The tulle with pop out and your pom pom will begin to form! 
Check and make sure you have all of the loops cut by combing through the pom pom. 
Then, trim the ends to make them as even as possible!
Voila! See how easy that was?  As always, leave me a comment and let me know what you think, or if you have a question, I'd love to answer it!
Hope you have fun making pom poms:)

  5. How many yards are in the rolls you use? 1 roll per pom?

  6. Yes, just one roll per pom. I did a few with half a roll and they just didn't turn out as full as these!
